Police: Man accused of killing LI nurse he met on app could have more victims

Posted: Updated:
WOODBURY -

New reports claim the man accused of killing a woman who worked as a nurse on Long Island may have more victims.

Danueal Drayton is accused of strangling Samantha Stuart in her Queens apartment earlier this month.

Just 10 days before the killing, Drayton was charged with choking and threatening an ex-girlfriend in Inwood.           

Nassau District Court Judge Erica Prager ultimately released Drayton without bail for that crime.       

Shortly after, he reportedly met the nurse through the dating app Tinder.

Just last week, Drayton was arrested again, this time in a California hotel room where he allegedly raped a woman who he shared an Uber with.

There are now reports that he has claimed to have killed at least five other women in New York and Connecticut.

Multiple agencies are now working to see if there are other victims out there.
